Perur Patteeswaraswamy temple built by Karikala Cholan is located 7 km west of Coimbatore near Noyyal river. The origins of this temple go back to the pre Christian era. Karikal Chola is said to have built the innermost shrine of the temple. The temple upholds huge statues. This is one of the best among South Indian temples in terms of architectural and sculptural splendour. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this is a temple of great religious significance. The statues of Gajasamhara, Virabadra, Bikshadana, Urdhva Thandava, Saraswati with Veena all rival one another in artistic perfection. The greatest attraction of the temple is the ‘Kanaka Saba’ or the golden hall, which is adorned by a gold plated statue of Nataraja.The cover illustration shows Lord Shiva in Urdhva Tandava pose and postmark shows Lord Shiva as Gajasamhara Murthy.
